About

ABOUT ME and MY SHOP:
I’m a teacher, a compulsive found-object crafter, beader, doodler, writer, poet, calligrapher, and mother of two amazing girls who are profoundly creative in their own ways. I love old things, especially old books, and this shop got started when I found my aunt's 1947 college dictionary, which was falling apart and bound for the trash. I loved the black and white illustrations and decided I'd make those wonderful old illustrations into jewelry. Then customers started asking for words, then maps... and the shop has just grown from there.
Although I have listed some of my beaded things, this shop is mainly about the pendants. Have fun browsing, and let me know if there's something in particular that you're looking for!
